Updated Friday Night 11 pm IST:

BB-6 will weaken on Saturday as it moves towards North Gujarat. By Sunday, it will be weak, as a Low, spread out over the North Gujarat/Kutch region. 

Rainfall in North Gujarat and Saurashtra till Sunday.(See Forecast Map for Saturday on blog post of Thursday). 
Still expecting heavy rains upto 70 mms or more in Surat.

Rainfall next week (21st September) in North Sub Continent (Punjab,Haryana, Kashmir, HP and North Rajasthan may occur due to WD and moiture  from erstwhile BB-6). More of this next week.

Downpours in Parched Regions...Relief as streams start flowing... 

BB-6 effect on Maharshtra. Moving due West, the system traverses through the main dry and drought regions of Marathwada and Vidharbha. Friday evening, BB-6 was over North Maharashtra (Jalgaon).
Much relief for the farmers as the small streams have started flowing and filled the smallest dams and reservoirs. This will surely raise the water tables, resulting in the local wells' levels rising.

Precision is the trademark of your analysis and forecasts. This is corroborated by the fact that even veteran IMD scientists check with vagaries before sharing on social media. So feeling privileged in being connected with you.

sset said...

Anoop pls don't say this.... we south Indians are eagerly waiting for NEM (Rayalseema, entire TN, interiors of KAR).. if this fails then they will become deserts...always SWM plays havoc at the last moment pushing NEM aside.. Places like RAJ / GUJ get dual benefit from SWM and WD and are no longer deserts..

Anyway other sites are hinting on fresh bay low but more towards northern India/ NE India...SWM is back in merry mode

Unknown said...

@sset I made this request earlier too. Please do not categorise this forum into SWM versus NEM. Remember that SWM directly affects Indian agro economy in a very significant wayand it is very deficient so far. Any rains now is only bringing down the deficit and not a surplus. And these rains are badly required by the farmers and the economy. Else we may all have a miserable year ahead on water supply including at Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. So henceforth could you refrain from bringing in such comments each time ? All of us always hope that India as a whole gets enough rain to keep all farmers and citizens happy and not just crib about one part of India. Just sit back and understand to appreciate the "vagaries" of the Indian monsoon without unnecessary comparisons. Hope sense prevails. Suresh

@ SSET , can you please explain who gave you the right to use "we south Indians" , i am a Tamil , who grew up in karnataka and now i stay in Pune, i want my country to flourish and every part get its due share of rains .

Have you ever ventured out to Aurangabad, Ahmednagar and Sholapur districts ? Which is similar to Cuddapah and Anantpur. As i said earlier , we have accepted your views which are valid , water scarcity in maharastra is largely man made due to excessive sugar cultivation and lack of rain water harvesting and wastage.

Its time you heed to other readers concern about your repetitive monotonous comments.

Regards, Ananth
